Saw this on a 600rr forum and thought it might be interesting here:

In your opinion, what is the best mod you've done and why?

For me, it's the Yoshi slip-on. I think the stainless with CF tip really sets off the looks of the 250.

When I made my "Home Link" for the bike. It's so much nicer not having to get off of it to open the garage door and park it. Just hit the button and ride on in.

Putting the stock pipe back on after fitting a cheap Thai one.

Quickly followed by my Pirelli tyres.

Then mirrors for city riding.

Aesthetically, making the black/silver model look like this:

Galfer Braided brake lines. Got rid of that spongy lever and doubled my confidence. That's also my only mod. Though my i did buy my bike with morowaki exhaust already fitted.

Yep, am ready for a braided line now, yesterday could feel the brush and bury of the front brake, but not the gradual release, felt like i was dragging the front too long into the corners even tho I was releasing the lever back as gradually as possible. can we get them for ABS model?

From memory someone on the thread I started 'SS Braided Brake Lines' gave there bike to Spielger for r&d for ABS Braided lines. Look it up and PM them. Or have a good google.

If it wasn't for the price that'd be my next mission. But I might try changing fork oil level/weight for less of a pogo stick front end.

Have you found the magic 10% increase point?
Basically no r100, It probably deserves its own thread some day.

Mods to do-

BT 003 tyres
Sato spools and a stand.
Woodcraft 1.5 lower bars.
Tyga Rearsets (also fixes the sloppy rose joint mount in the gear lever)
Tyga tail (sheds 3kg, crashes better, removes rear grabrails)
Replace fork oil weight and height and set preload.
Braided front line.
Sharkskinz bodywork and remove headlight, horn, and anything that isnt needed)
Adjustable or stubby levers.

Dilemma.... love riding the cbr, its very stable and predictable... 1.07 secs wobbling around learning in december, 102.9 in January, 1.00 minute last weekend, could possibly get down another couple secs if all goes well.

Or get a crashed 675 Daytona for about $6500 and spend that money on a dedicated track bike... decisions decisions, do not want to waste money nor do I want to race as there is no class here (only 125GP/ 400 4cyl/ 650 twin all in together) but want to ride each month .

I could always sell that stuff and get half the money back but thats the same for any bike, least with the cbr parts are cheap, the bike is new, I know its history, paid cash for it and having fun.

Maybe we need a 'Is modifying bikes worthwhile' thread.

I think you are on the right track Aufitt, you can't buy lap times, you must do lap times. Top shelf tyres and track time make you faster than all the do-dads many people here seem to be considering. A 10 lb weight loss via a slip-on is great, and if it gives you 1 hp that's a bonus. A lot of stuff is just "bling".
A SS brakeline on the front is the one that counts, and worth the money. One brakeline is not too expensive, but if you want to save a bit, make your own with Earl's components - Earl's Performance Products UK - Banjo Compression Fittings
You would love 125GP, but those bikes will be obsolete soon due to Moto3.
I raced for 8 years and I can tell you that you will get more track time doing a track day than you will at a race weekend.
